Samuel Gorovitz named Dearing-Daly Professor of Bioethics and Humanities at SUNY Upstate Medical University
Samuel Gorovitz, Ph.D., has been appointed the first Dearing-Daly Professor of Bioethics and Humanities at SUNY Upstate Medical University. In this professorship, Gorovitz will develop innovative scholarly and educational programs in bioethics through SUNY Upstate’s Center for Bioethics and Humanities.
He has written extensively on bioethics, particularly as it impacts public policy. Recent areas of inquiry include genetic susceptibility testing, the protection of research participants, doctor/patient relationships and physician- assisted suicide. He is author of “Doctors’ Dilemmas: Moral Conflict and Medical Care” and “Drawing the Line: Life, Death and Ethical Choices in an American Hospital.”
Gorovitz has advised the Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization, among others, on ethical aspects of health policy. He serves on the New York State Task Force on Life and the Law and is a professor of philosophy and of public administration at Syracuse University. As of May, he will divide his time between the two institutions.
This professorship honors Bruce Dearing, Ph.D., SUNY Upstate’s first professor of humanities in medicine, and Robert Daly, M.D., professor of psychiatry and bioethics and humanities at SUNY Upstate.
Gorovitz lives in Jamesville.
